The INFORMS Society for Marketing Science Advisory Board is accepting nominations for the 2018 Long Term Impact Award. 

To be eligible, a paper should have been published between six and ten years before the year in which the award is presented. For example, for the presentation year 2018, the paper should have been published sometime in the years 2008 and 2012. Eligible papers are original research articles and research commentaries.  Editorials, Database articles, Practice prize articles, Review articles, Invited articles, and Invited commentaries are not eligible. For the 2018 award, the papers are:

(1) all eligible papers published in Marketing Science between 2008 and 2012,

(2) all eligible papers published in Management Science between 2008 and 2012 that were handled by a Department Editor for Marketing or that use "marketing" as a key word, or

(3) Any other eligible paper published in an INFORMS journal between 2008 and 2012 that is nominated by an ISMS member other than the author(s) of the paper being nominated.

Authors of papers in categories (1) and (2) do not need to nominate their papers; they will be considered automatically.  Thus most of the papers eligible for the award will qualify automatically, and no response to this notice is required for these.

Some possible measures of impact are magnitude of subsequent work that builds on the paper, use in PhD reading lists and seminars, applications to  practice, and use in MBA teaching. The letter might explain how the paper shows the field something that it did not know before, shows a new way of thinking about a problem or issue, and/or opens up a new field of inquiry.

The nomination must be sent electronically in PDF format and it must include the complete bibliographic citation.  To be consistent with the award protocol, nominations cannot be accepted after March 2, 2018
